I'm overseas Chinese who has a knack for all things media related. I have lived in Manila, Pennsylvania, Shanghai and Hong Kong, and I have travelled the globe and sailed the seven seas. I am currently based in China, focusing mainly on Hong Kong-related features covering a wide variety of topics that includes food, art, music, health and travel. My work has appeared in several print media ranging from trade publications to lifestyle magazines.

Prior to moving to Hong Kong in December 2009, I held a post as the Food Writer at that’s Shanghai, Shanghai’s definitive monthly English magazine. Gripped by a ranging passion for all things food related, I wrote numerous restaurant reviews, profiled celebrity chefs and reported on the latest gastronomic trends.

Four years working in a local city magazine with an international editorial team allowed me to learn the tricks of the trade and since I have always wanted to run my own magazine, I jumped at the opportunity to work in Hong Kong and manage InsideDB (now AroundDB), a community and lifestyle magazine for Discovery Bay residents. I got involved in every aspect of publishing process right from content development, editing and writing, to finally production.

Today, my stories continue to entertain and engage the readers. Though I work full-time in public relations, I still find time to do what I am passionate about, that is, magazine writing and investigative journalism. When not interviewing, researching or writing, you'll find me on the shores of Cheung Chau wakeboarding, windsurfing, kayaking or dragon boating, or just lying on a pristine beach and basking under the sun with a good book.
